New Skeptic Blog Network

Hi all-  I wanted to call your attention to a new network of skeptical blogging called Skeptic Blogs.  It can be found at www.skepticblogs.com  This site was founded, at least in part, by John W. Loftus of Debunking Christianity and Edward Clint of Incredulous.  For what it is worth, I am very impressed with John’s writing.  I am finishing up his book “Why I Became an Atheist” and strongly feel that it is one of the best books that I have read on atheism and the problems inherent in the Christian faiths.  I am not yet familiar with Clint’s writing.

You can read about this new site here: http://www.skepticblogs.com/debunkingchristianity/2012/08/09/welcome-to-skeptic-blogs/

I find his blog and his “tone” excellent.  Last week when I updated my Comment Policy, John’s blog influenced my thinking—so too did vjack’s Atheist Revolution and Hemant Mehta’s Friendly Atheist.  I usually find a respectful tone and a great discussion there.  It is what I am trying to create here.  From reading about Skeptic Blogs it seems that this type of environment will exist there.

I am not familiar with the other bloggers that have signed on to this network, but look forward to checking them out.  I am passing this info along to you because it is a site that I look forward to checking out and thought that some of you would as well.

    While I generally trust John Loftus and he did abandon FtB on his own because of the direction there, you'd think that he'd be even more dedicated to free speech and keeping censorship at bay. At least that's what I'd think except for the fact that PZ Myers started FtB after abandoning ScienceBlogs (as his primary residence) because of the direction there, then FtB turned into censorship central. I'm supportive of SkepticBlogs as an alternative to the ironically named FreeThoughtBlogs, I just hope it chooses it's path much more wisely.

    I suppose this will make my weekly link post. I considered for a second submitting to write for them, but I think I'd rather stay in complete control of my blog. Plus, the name is a little misleading. I know skeptics and atheists have a lot of overlap, myself included, but the content so far is very atheist-centric and not much on general skepticism.
